10 Perks Of Going Home For Spring Break

Spring Break is a time every college students looks forward too. After a long cold winter, everyone is excited to lay out on the beach somewhere and soak up some sun cause let's face it, we all need a tan at this point. While most spend their spring break on the beaches of Cancun, Miami, Panama City Beach, etc., what about deciding to go home for Spring Break? I know it doesn't so glamorous but it has its perks.Here are some of the great reason's for going home for Spring Break.

1. You get to catch up on much-needed sleep.

After completing half of a semester and some midterms, sleep is the number one thing we all need. Being home allows you to sleep how much you want in your own bed.

2. Home-cooked meals

Dining Hall food is decent but not the best thing ever. So some home cooked food by your mom is more than enough of a reason to come home.

3. Seeing your pets

They miss you, you miss them, now you can come home and show them some love.

4. You don't need to get dressed up all the time.

If you go somewhere for spring break, you have to dress up and go out and actually see people every day. At home, you can just chill out and relax in pajamas all day.

5. More time to work on that summer body

You have a solid six more weeks to work out and look amazing for summer instead of having to show it off now. Plus, you can work out this week instead of just laying on the beach and eating out.

6. Spending time with family

Your family only gets to see you a few times a year so when you go home for Spring Break you get to spend some more quality time with them. They love you more than anything in the world so appreciate the time you get with them.

7. Catching up on homework

Tests and midterms start back as soon as you get back to school so it is great to be able to be productive and get a head start on some studying. You will thank yourself later.

8. Tons of Netflix

You finally have the time to just relax and watch a new series. What more could you ask for?

9. Saving money

Spring Break trips are super expensive so you will save a lot of money that you could spend on better things later on.

10. Catching up with old friends

Chances are some of your old high school friends will be home while you are so you get to hang out and have some fun with them.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
